I have Gone AMD...Opteron 165 - Page 5

post #41 of 45
Nice to see you're getting a good value upgrade . I must admit, with AMD slashing prices as they are, Conroe is the more expensive option and in many ways it's a little bit overkill power wise. I wouldn't swap mine now I've got it, but it was an expensive upgrade, even with a cheap motherboard.

I don't know a great deal about AMD CPUs, but from what I've read on the forum, the opterons are supposed to be good, solid o/c'ers, so I doubt you'll be disappointed, especially coming from a single core P4.

Good luck with the upgrade and let us know how your o/c'ing goes!!

Highly-Annoyed

Are you lowering the LDT? Are you making the ram run really slow with a divider at say 133 or 166?
